Dear Member-Owners & Co-op Fans:
Many of you have asked for details about our upcoming ground breaking celebration and when construction of the Monadnock Community Market Co-op building will begin. We can’t wait to get started either!
As the Monadnock Community Market Co-op finishes up the design process for the store, we have come to better understand the total cost of the project. Some additional costs have unexpectedly arisen that now make the current building design unaffordable based on our original construction cost estimates. The board and management are working diligently to reduce the cost of the project to what we can afford.
The board is committed to moving forward with the project, but not until the expense is within our means. We have a responsibility to bring a downtown food co-op to Keene that provides maximum value to our member-owners. That requires a thorough review of construction costs which is taking a little longer than anticipated.
Thank you for your patience. We are as excited as you to see a thriving downtown, community-owned food co-op.
Finance and Facilities Committee (Paul Pezone, Ed Guyot, Joe Marks) & General Manager, Michael Faber
